Four-star quarterback Dennis Dixon (6-4, 180, 4.5) from San Leandro, Calif., is off to a fast start and has looked sensational in 2002. Dixon as usual has led his team to two victories in two games.
Dixon is entering his third year as the starting quarterback and he has only lost two games. Both losses came at the hands of Concord (Calif.) De la Salle who just won their 127th straight game over a very good Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis squad.
Dixon has completed 20 out of 29 passes in his two so far his senior season for 293 yards and has five touchdown passes.
For his career the talented signal caller has thrown for 3,706 yards and 52 touchdowns.
Dixon doesn’t have any visits set yet, but he is thinking that he will sit down with his coach at the end of next week and together they may set up Dixon’s visit schedule.
UCLA, Oregon State, Oregon, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State, USC, Colorado and Florida State are the schools that Dixon is currently considering. His five visits should come out this group of schools.
Dixon is also one of the nation’s best baseball players and could be drafted in next springs’ major league baseball draft.
“Baseball will be a factor,” Dixon said.
“I want to go to a school where the coach will be there for awhile,” Dixon said. “I don’t want to go to a school where the coach will be there for one year and then gone the next.”
“Most importantly I want to attend a school that high and strong academics,” Dixon said.
Dixon was in town last Saturday and took in the UCLA/Colorado game. Dixon is very good friends with UCLA freshman Jarrad Page.
In an earlier interview with Rivals100 Dixon said, “Jarrad Page is a close friend of mine. Our friendship may be a factor in my decision.”
You might want to give UCLA a little bit of a nod there. But Dixon was emphatic when he said, “I have no leaders at this point.”
Dixon will lead his San Leandro teammates this evening September 27th against Hayward (Calif.) Arroyo.
Dixon is rated by Rivals100 as the nation’s number three combo quarterback.
Dixon has been using his unsung teammate Reggie McPherson (6-1, 185, 4.55). Rivals had a report on McPherson September 11th. Well it looks like Rivals found another great player.
McPherson is leading the league with 12 catches in two games with 3 touchdowns and leading team with 22 tackles.
McPherson worked incredibly hard to get ready for his senior season. Looks like McPherson’s hard work has paid off; more on this talented athlete soon.
